"Who are you going to be today Olive?"




It has been dry as dry for months now, and today it finally rained - wooo hooo!

I love receiving packages, and today I received a book that I ordered from Creative Thursday.
We read it tonight for the first time, and it's a lovely little read. Remember Lucas, and his habit of choosing the same books every night? Well I actually took charge with this one tonight, and have decided we will both choose one from now on - then I get to read the nice ones I have bought!
Anyway, it is called "Who are you going to be today Olive?" and it's a story of a little bird just learning how to be herself. With the help and support of her many friends, Olive finds her way.

Marisa Haedike is the author and the illustrator, and the pictures are just so cute. The story does have a little hidden message thrown in too, which will make you say, "Oohhh, that was nice wasn't it!"
Check out her blog here as it showcases her lovely paintings she does almost everyday. They can be purchased from her etsy store...
